Derek Whitmore(21) Buffalo Sabres / Rochester Americans / Portland Pirates
Born in Rochester, NY, undrafted 4th year winger Derek Whitmore(21) comes home to the Amerks for 2011/2012. He started his career with the team fresh out of college in 2008.
Buffalo re-signed him to his fourth one-year, two-way deal that almost assuredly will put most of his playing time at the Blue Cross Arena.
He did put some points up at a decent clip last season, his third in the AHL with Portland. If he keeps that up, there’s a very outside chance the Sabres could call him up.
